    Besides, even if a mind is changed. It doesn't matter, not like it will overturn abortion laws

    Ahhh, they are going to have sex no matter what you do. You don't have to "teach them how". Honest.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    No? Too much? Not far enough?

    It's Clintons fault too! BJ's amongst teenagers rose 45% after he left office.

    Granted, but don't get all shocked and shaken, when teen pregnancies go up after you've tought them how to have sex and use birth control.

    Has anyone else seen the show "16 and pregnant"?

    I actually like it. I think it shows the reality of teenage pregnancy pretty well.

If the president can get a bj while performing his job, I guess it's OK. There's been a disturbing new "game" among middle schoolers as of late. It's called Rings (or something). Each girl wears a different color lip gloss and goes down on a boy. The boy with the most rings wins. The kids say that BJs aren't really sex. Where did they hear that? I'm loathe to find the person who can participate in oral sex and not end up going all the way. Play with fire and all that.

    I want to know who these uptight Americans are that speak for the entire nation? Mormons? I know they're the ones getting all the flack now. What are their rates of teen pregnancies and stds? Probably a lot lower than national average.

    I can;t help but think about those high shool girls in Gloucester MA last year who made a game of seeing who could get PG. It was an epidemic. Gloucester is not a conservative town. I doubt anyone was teaching abstinence in those schools. MA is traditionally very liberal. If we're going to blame politics, let's be honest.
    Middleground tells you she's not blaming Bush--she's noting that teen pregnancy and disease increased sharply during Bush's presidency, yet you still say, "Well, if you want to blame a president . . ." Can you tell me again where she BLAMED Bush? You can provide incredibly rational posts, StandUp, but then you can provide these ridiculous partisan posts. It's disappointing to see an intelligent person acting like a child. Really.

    You want to blame Bush? Well, I blame Clinton for blow jobs and Democrats for the pregnancy issue in Glouster, Massachusetts. (This is you throwing a trantrum over an inaccurate inference you made of Middleground's post.) If the shoe fits.......

    I thought that was the show with all those kids that one lady and her iron uterus had popped out.

    Who needs to be taught how to use a condom? Put it on like a sock, plug your nose, and it's done.
